    Hi. So I have a facebook page. it is facebook.com/ilaganphotography. So far, about 315+ likes and just looking to make it better? What do people find as the best way to make use of their facebook page? I have been told to put a post every week to keep the page 'alive'. And I will be putting something at least every week in terms of special offers.

    If you do something new and creativity post in a quality way on Facebook then you can get huge traffic from there. Social Networking are too useful for today's modern SEO.

    I am going off the beaten path here for a moment. Your business is photography. What sites are most shared and most watched for photographs? Here is my brief list:
    Instagram
    Pinterest
    Flickr
    Facebook
    There are many others, but for a photographer you need to be on at least those four, not just one, all four. I would suggest you add Google+ and YouTube to the list, also. Posting content and specials once per week is not frequent enough. You should post a new picture daily. Mention events you will be photographing and share those events with the people involved. That will get the word spreading further as they share it, also.

    You need to focus the attention on all of those sites to point to your own business website, preferably off of Facebook, on your own domain name. Facebook is a place to engage your clients, but is just single spoke in your marketing strategy.

    Don't post per week. Post everyday. Post one of your photos and add some tags to them. Tagging helps a lot now a days. And i have noted that many Photographers start tagging members or their friends on their photos, so that your picture would appear on the news feed of your friend's, friends.
    Then another thing is that sometimes people also like your page if you have many likes, to get that, you can get fake likes as well. You should try to use addmefast. These websites can help you get fake likes. But those members sometimes unlike you. But if they like your photography, they might not unlike your page.

    Adding fake likes is not going to help anyone. Also, if I understand you correctly, a fake like, since it is not a real person, cannot unlike you. A fake like, since it is not a real person, also cannot have an opinion on a photograph. Losing fake likes, however, is a good thing.

    Facebook one of the best social marketing platform. Post article and picture on your page on daily basis. And share your updated post on different groups.

    Now a days social media sites have become one of the best tool for promotion. As far as Facebook is concerned it is the most widely used social platform where people spend their time. To use it as an effective tool you must have to do regular relative posting to your business, some social posts with quality content. Join some new groups, be active there, create own group and invite your friends and other people to join it.

    Yes it is correct posting everyday something on your Facebook page will make your page alive to get click and traffic. Despite doing facebook I would tell you do some other social marketing. That will help you more.

    I'd be interested to hear any success stories from Facebook marketing, i'd also be interested to know if the likes stay and if so how much the person then engages with the promoted page.

    I honestly have not had much facebook success. I use twitter a lot and have built a huge base. Not sure how it happened, but I gain new followers everyday. I guess perhaps its easier for people to see who someone they like is following and quickly add that person?

    Using facebook page to market your business is difficult sometimes, some people don't like it and not interested in your business. Be creative and active in your page will help you a lot to gain more likes.
